"Be Generous To Yourself"  

Oh hello! Who am I? Why! I'm Rarity!  Manager and proprietor of the Carousel Boutique!  And bearer of the Element of Generosity!

What? What you mean I'm not generous?! What do you mean I'm the weakest link in the chain of the Elements of Harmony? Get out!  Sorry about that, some ponies can just be so shallow.

Me? Not generous? The nerve! Just because I take pride in my appearance does not mean I'm not generous!

I once sliced off my own tail for a total stranger so he could have his beauty back!  

I made five, technically -ten- custom dresses for my friends for free (it wasn't that kind of budget)!  Not to mention I let a part of my soul die creating those sins against pony eyes.

I kept my trap shut about how much I loathed Fluttershy being in the spotlight instead of me because I thought she liked it!  

I ruined my own mane just after cleaning it to keep Pinkie Pie's surprise birthday party a secret!

I went on a stupid trip to the middle of nowhere losing several days worth of business just to keep Applejack and the others company!

So I've done one or two selfish things. So I let those magic wings go straight to my head when I was supposed to have them to support my friend. So I tried to bribe a new friend into giving me her spare ticket. You know what they say: 'only Princess Celestia is perfect.'

So I don't like getting dirty, so I like things to be organized, so I like things to be pretty. So? So what if I want to help as long as it doesn't involve getting dirty or having chocolate getting rained on me?

Elements of Harmony stolen. More importantly my horn stolen!  Into the maze. Separated from the others.  Oh my goodness! These pretty gems are shaped just like my cutie mark!

That vulgar and drool Discord asks if I like them. Well of course I like them. Why wouldn't I? I've always liked things that are pretty!

But I have to find my friends and get to the center of the maze first. Certainly they'll still be there when I get back . . . certainly I'll be let back into the royal hedge maze after saving the world -again-.

BUT I WANT THEM NOW!

They might be gone later! What are the chances of me finding them in this maze again?! I have to have them now!

My hooves tear through the stone wall, I'm covered in dirt, -I don't care!- I can clean up later! My hooves are ruined -I don't care- I'll be able to BUY the salon with these beauties . . . no . . . not beauties . . .this beauty, singular.

Handsome, gorgeous, hot, sweet sweet hunk of a diamond! Heh heh, can I marry you? Tee-hee, I sound like Pinkie Pie!

Don't worry dear, I'll get you home safe and sound my already cut and polished giant diamond out of solid rock.

Oh dear, I've gotten so caught up in one misadventure or crisis after another that I forgot: diamonds are a pony-girls' best friend, isn't that right dear?

Oh this feels so good. Ugh, a bit heavy but good.

Oh, some of the others have found me. Well, good I guess.

Rock? Are they -blind?- There's no way they could mistake my dearest for a rock! They're trying to trick me. They want him, er, it for themselves! Humph!  Well, fat chance. I found it, I dug it out, I'm carrying it, I don't care if it was in Celestia's hedge maze, I'll just say I found it elsewhere.

Isn't a pony entitled to the sweat of her flanks? 'No!' says Mayor Mare, 'It belongs to the poor!' 'No!' says Canterlot 'it belongs to Celestia!' 'No!' says Pinkie Pie, 'It belongs to everyone!'

Well, I REJECT those answers right now! What I've worked for and earned belongs only to me!

I've been a total foal, I've been trapped in lies this whole time. I knew I went on that quest to the dragon for the sake of getting part of his horde. Those five nit-picking with their dresses nearly permanently destroyed my reputation.

I got cursed by poison joked following someone else's relative who was already being followed!  Trying to fix up Twilight's one ruined bird nest put me completely behind my quota!

I knew I had to save my own store rather than just stand around watching the town getting eaten by parasprites!

It felt so good manipulating those empty headed diamond dogs into giving me their fortunes they were just sitting on!

Trying to find my happy ending with somepony resulted in the worst night of my life!

Things won't hurt you, things won't disappoint you, things won't deceive you, isn't that right my dearest?

The only pony I should have ever been generous to, from the beginning was myself.

Be generous to yourself, care for yourself, love yourself, because you're the one that deserves it the most.

Eine psychologische Auseinandersetzung mit dem ersten Zweiteiler der zweiten Staffel von My Little Pony: Freundschaft ist Magie, erzählt aus der Sicht der sechs Heldinnen der Geschichte:
Equestria steht am Rande einer Katastrophe. Ein Feind, so alt wie das Land selbst, hat sich aus seinem Jahrtausende-langen Schlaf befreit, und hat die königliche Hauptstadt und Ponyville ins Visier genommen.
Discord, seines Zeichens Gott des Chaos, will den Thron wiedererringen, von dem ihn Celestia und Luna einst gestürzt hatten. Und dieser Tyrann bedient sich zum diesen Zweck seiner zerstörerischsten Waffe; und das sind Equestrias Ponys selber. Als Herr über Verstand und Wahrnehmung, weiß er sich jeden noch so starken Willen untertan zu machen.
Nun liegt es an den sechs Elementen der Harmonie, Discord Paroli zu bieten, bevor das Land unter ihm im Chaos versinkt.
Doch dann kriegen auch sie die volle Breitseite von Discords Macht zu spüren. Eine nach der anderen stellt fest, dass Discord in seinen Begründungen doch sehr 'überzeugend' sein kann....
Dies sind ihre Geschichten.

Here's the translation butchering of this chapter.

"Be generous with you"

Oh Hello! I am? For the! I was much less! Director and owner of Carousel Boutique! And well-carrier element!

What? This is what you mean because I do not! He Harmony series I am most vulnerable elements mean? Go! I talked about this am sorry, it can be smooth some ponies.

Me? Not good? Nervous! I am generous, not only because it does not boast!

My tail piece to the beauty of the back can be a total stranger!

I (did not matter your budget) for my friend a free five technical -ten- special clothes! He died for our sins, but I have a piece of pony eyes.

I hate how I shut my trap focus was Fluttershy because he felt that love me!

I found Pinkie a secret for a long time thereafter, a surprise birthday party cleaning step has not been destroyed!

I can only Applejack and other companies lost business value, a trip for a few days in the middle of a fool!

So, I have a thing or two selfish. I leave my head when this magical wings, my friend was support. So, I empty my new friend tried to buy tickets. Are you ". Just perfect for what Princess Celestia address

So, I do not want to get dirty, so I like that, so I like things to be good. So what? I want to help, but no reason to rain, mud or chocolate is for me?

Harmony stolen items. My main horn theft! Within this web. Separate each other. My God! This beautiful jewelry right size as my beloved Mark!

It was rude and I want to ask strife drooling. Well, of course I am. Why do not I? I always see good things!

But my friend, and be the center of the first web. I have to be, still is, I am back. . . Course, and confusion to save the world through the royal wall.

But I want it now!

Then you can! This web is my chance! I have now!

My cracking clay, I do not care tears through a stone wall! I can clean! Destruction of my hoof care, I will be able to buy a living room, this beauty. . . I will not. . . Beauty. . Beauty unit has built up.

A diamond sweet, sweet pieces, good very good, hot! Hey, hey, I will marry you? T-Hee, I could feel Pinkie!

Dear I will be home safe and sound, do not worry, and my great hard rock sound has been already cut and polished diamonds.

Oh my god, I forgot I was raised in a crisis or disaster are: Diamond is a good friend, a girl pony, "It is right, dear not?

Oh, it does not feel very good. He, a little heavy, but good.

Oh, and a few others, I think. Well, the best estimate.

Rock? blind; - This fault is a way for my beloved is a stone! They are trying to deceive me. Where I want it for themselves! Humpy! Well, fat chance. I, I get it, dig, I found it, I can only say that I have found in other places Celestia does not matter if it was set Walkway.

A pony watching is right? "I do not!" Mayor Mare, "the poor members!" "I do not!" Canterlot Celestia said! "" No, I tell you! "Pinkie Pie" is all about! ", He said

Well, I refuse to answer now! I work and are fitting me only win!

I with total equal, all the time lies. I, at least partly because gang Dragon, this adventure was to know. Their clothes with a solid five, almost always in my head.

I already affected poison joked! The destruction of a bird in my total support slot at dusk, my contribution to the solution!

I never had my own shop and see parasprites store and around the city just to eat!

I just sat diamond dog came to me, his wealth, feeling busy these defects are very good!

Somepony the worst night of my life was the end of my joy and seek!

Things,, stupid, it is a loss, you, my beloved will be disappointed for the right?

I should never have had only the beginning of the pony.

Do you love to take care of ourselves one more for, to be generous with yourself.

" What do you mean I'm the weakest link in the chain of the Elements of Harmony"

- Don't worry Rarity: this was written in season one back when you were everyone's least liked.  Now.... I don't even know the general ranking order anymore.  Uh I think rainbow and pinkie pie are the most loved but uh you're more up there.  And honestly I think Rarity is one of my favorites actually.  I have a thing for characters who are sort of snobbish but also do have a lot of love and uniqueness about them and hey she usually does have some of the best lines in the show honestly so there's that.

- "
Not to mention I let a part of my soul die creating those sins against pony eyes. "

- Ah I remember that episode.  The one that was about how an artist shouldn't give in to what people wanted because even if they aren't exactly what they asked for.  You know the one where the artist especially when they're doing it without even getting anything out of the participant, should have final say and not let others comments get to them so much.  In other words not try instantly course correcting when someone points out one mistake aka not get upset by negative reviews.  Gee I wonder what artsits here could learn that lesson more.  cough cough alexwarlorn cough.

- I always feel bad when a story gets longer and longer the more you think about it but the stuff you did with some characters is what was in the shorter end that you're not getting back to thus they get a shorter end of the stick as obvious the more you went with this the more you put in thus why Applejack's section is so mure less then Rarity's.

- "
You know what they say: 'only Princess Celestia is perfect.'"

- Except even Celestia isn't.  Honestly are they ever going to do an episode focusing on her where we see she needs to learn a lesson and grow because she clearly does yet the show never seems to focus on that.  Come on guys time to knock the high horse off her pedestal... literally.

- I always like it whenever someone has to say "saving the world... again" indinicating just how business like saving the entire planet and populace has become for them.  "Yadda yadda fight for all of humanity- uh ponmanity at sake.  Haven't heard that one before come on let's go let's go."  Always good for a laugh in my book.

"Heh heh, can I marry you? Tee-hee, I sound like Pinkie Pie!"

- Look just because Pinkie will party with a rock and act like it's her friend doesn't mean she'll marry them.  You know what is it with this series and marriges anyway? Everyone wants to marry a doll when Twilight puts a love spell on it, another love spell forces Big Mac and Cherilee to hook up and talk of marrige before they meet back up in a hole, and then a big wedding was actually part of an elbaroate ruse by some evil dark changeling queen.  So no don't marry Rarity.  Even if it is a rock pretending to be a diamond pretending to be... real, it's not going to end well.  


- See it's good that it's being pointed out Rarity's being obviously corrupted because she says her greed was good for trying to get dragon gold yet her friend's greed was bad at wanting more dresses.  So not only is she being greedy but contradictory greed.  Oh well it's better then just plain being a dick greed.  That's Mr. Krab's thing now.  

"
It felt so good manipulating those empty headed diamond dogs into giving me their fortunes they were just sitting on!"

- Well I think that one was true because it was what the episode ended on and was part of the moral.  Plus hey they kidnapped and were going to enslave her so why not turn the tables on them . Plus who doesn't love the line "That's not whining.  That was complaining.  Thisssssss is whiningggggggggg."

- "
Be generous to yourself, care for yourself, love yourself, because you're the one that deserves it the most."

- So be generous to me and not to you? Okay.  *Takes rock* And now I have the oh my god a giant rock... I mean the boulder's going to put the hurt in the dirt... I mean I wanna rocks with you...  I mean other references Alex won't get.

- Another good one and nice job actually having this mean something and having this actually work with putting some weight and importance on what was again one of the more sillier bits with Rarity acting all uberly obsesssed.  I'd say gollumesque but those were yeah the Diamond Dogs so not that.

Quoting an Objectivist in the story. I C WAT U DID THER.

Objectivism is not opposed to philanthropy or generosity, gentlefolk. I wish people would take time to LEARN and UNDERSTAND that. What Objectivism opposes is coerced "charity" and, more fundamentally, Comtean morality.

Coerced charity is a simple concept. If you are forced to make a charitable contribution--- by taxation, by societal blackmail, by any form of force or deception.... it is not charity. It is theft by any name.

Comtean morality is the philosophical belief that a virtuous act only because it is done selflessly, with no personal gain or benefit. That a good deed that helps others is virtuous BECAUSE it helps others....regardless of any other consideration.

The flaw in this moral philosophy should be apparent:
"For the Greater Good." Or better yet, "But it's for the childreennnnnnnn .....!"



Doing for oneself is not an evil act. In fact those deeds are routinely the most beneficial to others: it is not due to the philanthropy of the butcher, the baker, or the greengrocer that society benefits, but by the pursuit of their own best interests. It is the profit motive of the farmer that fills your belly, not the coerced compassion thereof.

And doing things "for others" does not automatically make them good deeds.Some of the most profoundly destructive and evil deeds ever done by Man were done in the name of the Greater Good. The Holocaust, the French Revolution, the gulags of the Soviet Union were all done in the name of the golden future of humanity.

Yes, Rarity, men have the right to the sweat of their own brow. If they choose to share with others, freely, of their own will, without coercion, threat, extortion or deceit, then THAT is a virtue. And if they engage in voluntary exchange with other free souls, benefiting themselves, THAT is a virtuous deed too.

Also, these are a lot shorter than I thought they would be... with my ability to read fairly quickly, I got through LiarJack, Angry Pie, and Rarigreed (Greedity? You're a little inconsistent there...) in about five minutes... Are the Reharmonized portions longer?

Well that's a new one, I guess it was because I came right after Pinkie's that I didn't really feel much for Rarity. But you did point out one important thing in this story, and that is her sacrifices to help others and friends in need.

Rarity explaining what she sacrifice to help her friends reminded me of that one episode fo the Simpsons, when the rest of the family found out that Homer HATED doing all the things he did with them (thanks to him being put on a reality TV show of people confessing their feelings to a cab driver). At first I thought he was going to get it, but it turns out that everyone was ready to reward him for doing everything hated just to make them happy. His confession on that TV show made them realized that despite not enjoying the same things that they do, Homer was sacrificing his time and happiness to make them happy and they decided that he deserve some happiness from them. :nod:

Anyway, the way you had Rarity becoming increasingly more selfish as time went on was very (hmm what's another way to say this other than great)... nerving I guess, ^^; but I still enjoyed it. :)

This is dark, even given what you've done up to this point. In fact, I think this is the darkest of all your work thus far...not because nothing else you've done reaches this deep, but the fact that none of it starts deep and gets this much deeper. I think my biggest problem is really a carry-over from the show: it seems too easy. Despite the fact that she resists the most of any of them, she seems to cave a bit too easily...I don't know. Still, this is a very impressive piece, and I'm surprised by how dark it manages to be. Rarity starts off sounding bleak and despairing, as if she feels she doesn't deserve Generosity and doesn't want to admit it...and then it spirals down from there as she descends into true madness.

Rarity's light shines the brightest IMHO, because she also shares the deepest darkness out of all the ponies (close second is Pinkie Pie). Rarity is the Element of generosity, but a sense of entitlement, vanity, and covetousness also runs through her like a river. It is these flaws that CAUSE her Generosity to shine bright. Her Generosity is exception because it can overcome these flaws. You're not the first to describe this as a spiral into insanity.

Thank you for the your comment. And your praise.
